DescriptionAllan Pinkerton Inscribed Photograph Signed. 8" x 10" sepia-toned 1866 vignette portrait of the famed Scottish-born detective. Below his image, Pinkerton has written: "yours truly / Allan Pinkerton / 1866." Areas of buckling along the lower edge appear to have been caused by slight water damage. Mounted to a backing board.
Over the course of his career, Allan Pinkerton (1819-1884) developed techniques for investigation that are still in use by law enforcement today. The private investigation firm that he founded in 1850 still operates today.
